I am looking for software I can load on my Blackberry Curve 8330 that will GeoCode the photos I take with it. I've tried some different pieces of software and have had limited success. Either the Geo Tag doesn't get added to the photo or the software doesn't support Alltel.

Any suggestions & software solutions are greatly appreciated.

At RIM's WES 2008 conference, itookthisonmyphone.com was a big vendor for this. To find more, search for "geotag"... for some reason i dont know thats what people call it on their PDAs ;)

Do you have any additional solutions or ideas. I have tried itookthisonmyphone.com and did not receive the results I was looking for. I was unable to GeoCode the photos. I see it has been over a month sice I tried your original solution. I wil try it again this week an report back the results.

Thanks

I did find on my new Storm blackberry, it had the option to geocode photos build into the operating system. I believe this is a feature of the OS. Unfortunetly, the storm is the only BB to run 4.7 OS, so i cant say if it is new in 4.6 or 4.7. I'll see if i can find anythign else.

A Solution has been found! I installed the 4.5 OS update for the Blackberry Curve. The new 4.5 OS supports Photo Geo-Coding. Just as ALogvin mentioned with the Blackberry Storm. I was running 4.3 OS previously.

This feature seems to be working great. The only downside is I have to turn on blackberry maps to activate the phone's GPS. Not much of a hassle, its just becomes another program running in the background though.

Thanks for all your help.
